from efren. anne makovec has more. >> reporter: unfortunately, no sign of the missing man. but in some ways, fortunately, because authorities are still holding out some level of hope, that frederick sales could be found alive. they will be searching at the dump for another half an hour and plan to come back tomorrow to do the same thing. >> we will do what we need to do until we have all of our answers and we find mr. sales. >> reporter: the dirty job at the keller canyon landfill continues today. two dozen volunteers combing through tons of trash, looking for any sign of the body of 35- year-old frederick sales, missing and feared to have been killed by efren valdemoro who was shot and killed by officers on tuesday. police say he killed sales' father ricardo last week. he was found bludgeoned to death in this home owned by valdemoro's girlfriend, where the father and son were tenants. in late august, valdemoro told police the two had beaten him up during an argument. these pictures were take and
valdemoro filed police reports but before police could act the elder sales was found dead and frederick has been missing since. >> unfortunately, everybody that is connected to this case intimately, they are now deceased. >> reporter: the theory police have been working under in this dump search is that valdemoro might have left sales' body in a dumpster at this business park in hercules where a cadillac valdemoro was known to drive was found parked. investigators say employees there reported an awful smell near the dumpster. but police did not get the chance to check it out before the trash was taken to this landfill, where square yard by square yard of compacted trash is loosened by this excavator, and gone through by hand. as the cadaver dog sniffs for clues. >> it is hot. it is smelly. it is very tedious. but they're all troopers. and they're going to stick it out. >> and now by about noon today, police say they had gotten through about half of the area they were hoping to search.

a pretty nice evening outside and it will continue to that way. clouds for the better part of the evening, maybe fog later on. clear skies and warm temperature, and sest 70s and mid 80s inland. breezy through the golden gate bridge. and some fog intruding through the gate. and cooler temperatures coastside in the 50s and 60s. tomorrow, a little bit warmer in spots. 80s, maybe low 90s inland. 70s and maybe 80s by the coastline. low clouds early on. by the latter part of the day, maybe a little sunshine. and also the winds are trying to set themselves up and i think more so by tomorrow afternoon. patchy fog continuing coastside and probably see it hug the coast overnight tonight and make its way just inside the bay. temperatures 8 a degrees in concord and -- 85 degrees in concord. and 74 degrees in san rafael. cool 50s out toward the coastline. traveling around the state, you will find some temperatures an temperatures on the hot side.
96 in fresno. about 92 in ukia. guess what? we have a trough of low pressure along the west coast. we have been saying that for the better part of the last four months. here it is once again helping to deepen the marine lay area little bit. torp, high pressure begins to build in. that will lift somewhat. and that means slightly warmer temperatures expected for the bay area tomorrow and i think we will spike the heat a little bit toward monday. tomorrow morning, a couple of patches of fog early on but not as thick this morning and watch what happens by the afternoon and they start to break up quite a bit and lots of sunshine, and i think the temperatures are going to warm up a few degrees around the bay area. still plan on some 60s coastside for the most part and get inside the bay and how about this, sunshine, about 77 degrees, in san mateo and about 81 in santa clara and about 80 degrees in fremont, and east bay temperatures, going to start heating things up and 90 in brentwood in 90 and antioch and 89 in livermore. just enough of a sea breeze to keep the temperatures in the mid-70s in oakland and also berkeley, and how about the north bay, and are you going to see a lot of sunshine as we
head into the afternoon? 70s and mid 80s by the afternoon. and 60s out toward the immediate coast. and for the next few days, the temperatures will spike just a bit into monday, but by tuesday, we start to head the other direction again, and boy, talk about going up and down. we will head well below the average as we look toward tuesday and wednesday. then temperatures may slowly warm as we begin to head toward this next weekend. meantime though, a labor day forecast for you, looking good, as we will see plenty of sunshine, warm temperatures all the way to the coastline, maybe 70s out toward the beach and mid-90s in some spots inland. that's a look at weather. here is kim coyle with sports. >> thanks, lawrence. it didn't take long for andrew left to show everyone why he is considered one of the best in the country. and the bears roll in their opener against uc davis. sports is next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

14-0 bears. riley completed his first nine passes. and cal fans are going to love freshman wide receiver keenen allen. he is supposed to throw it, but no one is open, so he takes off, 18 yards later, he has the first career touchdown. cal wraps up over 500 yards on offense. and blows out uc davis 52-3. despite losing toby garhart to the nfl, stanford got plenty of love the offceasen from the national media. according to most of the expert, the top quarterback in the country plays down on the farm. jim harbaugh calls andrew the best quarterback he has ever seen and sacramento state may agree by the first half, by the sophomore qb. midway through the first, stanford up 7-0. and then the senior receiver takes it all the way for an 80-yard touchdown. it is the longest completion, third longest completion in
school history. the two would hook up for another touchdown before the half. he throws for a career high four touchdowns in the first half. baldwin goes over 100 yards receiving. stanford beats sacramento state 52-17. while cal and stanford cruised in their opener, san jose state is taking on defending national champs alabama and 48-3 in the fourth. we will have full highlights at 11:00. brian kelly leading the fighting irish on the field for the first time. notre dame taking on purdue. late in the first quarter, kelly's uptempo offense puts the first points on the board. and armando allen shakes free and dives in for the score. the defense holds the boilermakers to just one touchdown. notre dame wins their opener, 23-12. the raiders made their final cuts today. the notable names not on the 53- man roster, full back luke lawton and defensive end jay richardson. the seahawks have cut wide
